Birthday Card ~ Birds On a Wire

I tried a new {to me} technique today.
I love to ink up my embossing folders to add color to my backgrounds.
First I inked up my embossing folder purple ink.
Next I rubbed over the raised numbers with a blue ink pad.
I love the two-tone effect it gave my back ground.
I die cut the sentiment to give my little birds a place to hang out.

*Birds from the Year Four stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Birds cut using the Year Four die set from Lawn Fawn.
*Sentiments cut using the Happy Birthday Border die set from Lawn Fawn.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Number Collage folder from Provo Craft.
*B21 and YR23 markers from Copic.
*Memento Grape Jelly, Bahama Blue, and Tuxedo Black stamp pads from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.
